Just got word that two new records will be shipping to me next week and thought I’d go ahead and put them up for preorder.
NEW SWEARS – JUNKFOOD FOREVER, BEDTIME WHATEVER LP
Ottawa’s original party animals are back with their second full length LP; Junkfood Forever, Bedtime Whatever! The band has been said to sound like “Mean Jeans partying with the Black Lips,” and that description continues to be pretty spot on. However, this time around, in addition to the revved up; surf tinged; catchy as hell garage rock, the band experiments with country (“Sweet Donna”), riffy space rock (“Cool Aid”), and indie pop (“No Fun”). But don’t mistake that experimentation for the band beginning to take themselves too seriously. This album is chalk full of carefree energy, and it’s coming out right in time to be the soundtrack to a truly epic summer. Comes with a download code

BLANK PAGES – NO RECEPTION 7″
Blank Pages are from Berlin, Germany and play dark melodic punk that sounds a bit like The Marked Men covering the Wipers. This single includes two killer songs recording in Portland, OR while embarking on their first (and, sadly, last) US tour, that are the perfect follow up to a their self-titled LP we released last year. The band just completed a European tour and announced that they are breaking up. And while this is unfortunately, we’re happy to have had the opportunity to bring the majority of their catalog to the US. Members of Modern Pets and Life Fucker. Comes with a download code.
